there in orlando and a has the latest for us. >> reporter: tense, because a defense expert questioned whether there was a murder in this case at all. with the summertime temperatures start to soar here, so do the tempers. it's late june in florida and the heat is rising. everywhere. tensions have boiled over in the long line to court. the court is now banning overnight campers. but inside the courtroom, it's another matter. >> this is not a game. >> reporter: the judge, now playing referee to some unsportsmanlike conduct. >> what you're saying sir, you can pick which court orders are you can comply with and you don't comply with. >> reporter: he threatened casey's attorney with contempt. and he's cut down a prosecutor i too, for being snippy in court.

trial passes the halfway point. a death penalty is on the line. while they are fighting to get in, casey anthony is fighting to get offer. the strain and pressure perfectly understandable not just because of the death penalty on the line, also millions of people are watching this. it's on television and online. this story actually made the website, accounting today. the story casey anthony trial made accounting today.com. >> thanks, ash. joining us now for more on this latest testimony. it gets more bizarre. dan abrams. you saw dr. spitz. he had some interesting things to say about the cause of death. >> he should have been the defense's star witness. remember, he's saying that this could be an accident. he's saying that duct tape, which prosecutors are saying was
a murder weapon, he's saying that it was placed there afterwards, autopsy was shoddy. but yet on cross examine prosecutors were able to undermine much of his testimony, in the end when one of his theory didn't fit, he suggests that the medical exam ners may have staged evidence. once you're in the position, your response of theory doesn't fit, they staged everyday, you're in a tougher spot. >> we were even and everyone else talking about this excon, this connection with casey's dad -- >> right, we were finally thinking that the defense would be able to link george anthony to bad conduct. the problem is excon holds a press conference at the courthouse saying, i don't know this guy and the reason he was
linking him to george anthony based on cell phones conversations, he said that i didn't even have that cell phone back then. >> it doesn't bode well for them. i got to tell you, we're seeing people hitting each other trying to get in. the judge is really trying to keep things down. >> it should remain outside the courthouse. it's a shameful black eye for the legal system an inability to control the crowds. even at the o.j. simpson case, they were able to keep people in line. >> dan abramgs, thanks. coming up -- an gma exclusive. another big trial in the headlines. the woman caught on tape trying to hire a hitman. also, flash robs? the mobs of kids swarming stores
